during the bush administration and, frankly, with the drone wars of the obama years. >>> and then politics loses one of its best biographers, well, ever. saying good-bye to richard ben kramer, a man who knew what it takes better than anybody. >>> good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 8th, 2013. this is "daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. my first reads of the morning. chuck hagel's nomination has set up a tough, new political fight for the white house. a fight president obama signaled he's ready to have over the plain spoken vietnam veteran. >> willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular. even if it defied the conventional wisdom. that's exactly the spirit i want on my national security team. >> under fire for his past statements about israel and iran. hagel is now speaking out. told his hometown newspaper "lincoln journal star." the distersions about my record have been astounding. once voicing opposition to unilateral sanctions on iran, hagel says while he was "hanging out there in no man's land unable to respond to charges, falsehoods and i

washington irresponsibly continues to look the other way. and so does the beltway press -- as demonstrated in that town hall debate last fall when cnn's candy crowley almost -- almost -- asked barack obama and mitt romney about global warming. >> climate change, i had that question, all you climate change people, we just, you know again, we knew the economy was still the main thing so you knew you kind of wanted to go with the economy. >> and so she veered away, avoiding the issue as if global warming is of concern only to a small clique of elites instead of every one of us. and so for the first time since 1984 there was no mention of climate change in any of the presidential debates. no mention as that clock ticks away and the warnings mount. why isn't this planetary emergency on every politician's mind? why are any of us still silent? those questions prompted me to ask anthony leiserowitz joi me at this table. he's director of the yale project on climate change communication and a research scientist at yale university's school of forestry and environmental studies. he's a geographer by

to facebook.com/progresso to enter. >>> president obama meeting with defense secretary leon panetta later today but it's the man he wants to replace panetta with that could stir things up on capitol hill today. "today in the bay's" tracie potts live in washington right now with a look at how the confirmation hearings for the pentagon and cia could prompt the next big fight among all of those lawmakers out there. par for the course, huh, tracie? >> absolutely. they are used to big fights on capitol hill. john brennan going up for cia director could prove to be that. he was considered for this position back in 2008 but pulled his own name because of questions back then about whether or not he backed cia interrogation tactics. this time around it could be more about those drone attacks targeted towards some of our enemies. even more so than that, chuck hagel up for secretary of defense could face a really rocky time not only with republicans but with democrats as well. he's a republican but some republicans as they put it he left the party a long time ago. they have issues with the stance he

is on the enhanced interrogation policy. first on the drones there's an interesting section in "the washington post" today which points out how much the drone attacks have soared under president obama and john brennan, who served under him, 390 in the past decade in pakistan and yemen, and 340 of those were under obama and brennan, while brennan was serving him. what does that say? is brennan partly responsible for these drone attacks? what does that say about, people are very critical of these drone attacks. >> well success has many fathers and controversy has feuders, the drone attacks brings both. this process was fathered and naureur ud by mike hayden when he was the director of the cia at the very tail end of the bush administration. john brennan comes in at the beginning of the obama administration and builds white house policy and process around it. that's also one of the reasons there are few al qaeda leaders walking around today. >> we've gone from leon panetta to david petraeus briefly and now if john brennan is confirmed, john brennan. is the cia changing? >

washington being dysfunctional. if in two years the country wants to elect, you know, a completely democratic house that will agree with everything that the obama administration wants, then we'll do that and we'll electric more democratic senators, the democrats can control the house, the senate and the white house and we'll give the president a rubber stamp on everything and washington will be totally fixed and we'll live in this great, great european country. so maybe it will go that way. but if it doesn't go that way and it's not washington, it's the people that send these representatives to washington who disagree with -- there's a 50/50 people split in this country of people who love entitlements because they're people on the receiving end and there's people on the other side who is funding everything. i don't know. i don't know whether it's a broken washington or we're just at a crossroads in the way the republic is governed and we have to make a decision as a country which way we head. >> right. that's definitely a lot of the ltage. there's still a lot of assets on the other side of th

over hagel is a struggle over whether obama can change the terms of the foreign policy debate. explain that for me. >> i think so far, the debate about military action in iran has been conducted by and large in washington, as if iraq and afghanistan didn't happen. as if we haven't leashed anything from the disaster that these two wars over the last ten years. the real struggle between hagel and his foes, is he wants to bring some of the lessons in to the iran debate that we learned about iran and afghanistan. he talks compelling about wars once launched can't be fully controlled. cognizant of the enormous financial cost that these wars have imposed on the united states, and the heart of the hostility is the fear that his recognition about what happened in afghanistan and iraq will make taking to us war in iran harder. >> you suggest there are no consequences for the iraq war in terms of those who supported or imposed it. >> if you listen to republican foreign policy discourse, with the exception of a few people like chuck hagel, would you think that the iraq war had been a great succes

, a decorated soldier and vietnam veteran has been tapped to take over the lead at the pentagon. president obama yesterday emphasized hagel's personal service and connection to the organization he's now been nominated to run. >> chuck represents the bipartisan tradition we need more of in washington. for his independence and commitment to consensus, he's earned the respect to national security and military leaders, republicans and democrats including me. in the senate, i came to admire his courage and his judgment, his willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular, even if it defied the conventional wisdowisdom. that's exactly the spirit i want on my national security team. when it comes to defense of the country we are not democrats or republicans, we are americans and most importantly, chuck knows war is not a distraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared towards the guy of the bottom, who is doing the fighting and the diel. >>
